Forced to re-register, and lost data!

HELP!!  I was forced to reregister my Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight tonight, and all the data I added to my Nook was deleted.

 

-Bookmarks

-Notes

-Highlights

-Shelves

 

All are gone - how can I recover this?  WHY was my data erased?

 

How can I turn updates off - trust me, there is NO WAY anything in that update was worth my loss of data!

Re-registering erases everything. You can't recover it (to my knowledge), it's just gone, like any other computer file that has been deleted/erased.

 

The only way you can avoid updates on a truly stock device is to keep wifi off unless downloading books to your library.  I believe some people here would be able to tell you how to do it if rooting or running something like N2A.
